No Smoking

We’re still a little stumped by this one.  About 8 #cigarette holders were on the table, filled with water and #nosmoking signs🚭.  

Ok, I get the ‘no smoking’ 🚭. . . . but then why put out 8 cigarette holders🚬 at all???  If to SAY no smoking, wouldn’t one do the job?πŸ˜‚

They took up a lot of table space, and we were all just rather perplexed 😜

The New Hotel Security System

Haha!😜 Visited a 5⭐ hotel this weekend and found that the bathroom was entirely see-through.   Embarassing, no?!?  Asked my students why and got this lovely response ‘Many hotels in China do this. It’s very common.  Because sometimes the men, they come with a strange woman. Or two. Or different ones. And when they go to the bathroom, all their money is taken.  So this way they can see and be safe.’ πŸ˜’ πŸ˜‚ That’s hilarious.  A five star hotel arranges its bathroom around keeping rich men safe from their ‘women’.  Sad.  Very, very sad.   #lifeinchina #china #travel #humor #abroad, #whataworld

Real #American Breakfast

​A real #American breakfast!  πŸ΄  In #China, donuts that taste like real donuts and CHEESE! are so hard to come by. We’ll pay a fortune just for a good old-fashioned meal once in a while. The Chinese usually eat soup, dumplings, fried bread, or salad for breakfast, which isn’t my cup of tea. But we’re staying at the Hilton for a couple days – in China, the nice hotels have both an American and a Chinese buffet – makes for quite the array!  πŸ™‚

Ba Si

​

Ba Si is a delicious real Chinese dish made from fruits, baked potato, or sweet potato – battered and then covered in a sweet sugary- caramel like sauce that hardens into a candy-glaze.  My personal favorite!
